    gaming, says you? for gaming applications your best option is an amd athlon64 platform. not only will it save you a bit of green but the a64s run cooler, consume less power, and deliver generally better gaming performance. just make sure you get an athlon based on a 90nm process and use name brand mobo, psu, ram parts. what games are you trying to play? what is your total budget for thsi computer? what parts, if any, do you already possess?
